The key focus of the project manager is on delivering Business applications using the low code platform.

Essential for this role are a knowledge of Agile Software development processes, and experience working with local and distributed teams.

  • Report status and key metrics both to the wider organisation and back to the team as a feedback mechanism.
  • Take responsibility of budget management including appropriate escalation, where required.

  • Make customer-oriented decisions and share great stories of exceptional customer service.
  • Create a development environment that is creative, safe, productive and supportive and enables multi-direction collaboration.
  • Can help the product owners understand and adhere to scrum techniques and practices while ensuring consistent, sustainable delivery.
  • Can facilitate various Scrum ceremonies.
